Ozzy Osbourne is perhaps one of the most famous rockstars to have ever lived and is known around the world for various different things. Naturally, the self-proclaimed Prince of Darkness is better-known for being the leader of Black Sabbath.
Combine his celebrity status with NetEnt’s history of producing rock-themed games, and it should be no surprise that the developers have produced the Ozzy Osbourne slot game.
Following with the rather Gothic theme that can be associated with the rocker, our Ozzy Osbourne review found that the game is played across five reels and features 40 winnable paylines in which players can try and form winning combinations.
Players can either look to play the Ozzy Osbourne Free Play version at the top of the page or they can simply get in on the action with a bet as small as $0.20. Bets are adjustable and players will be pleased to know that they can place a maximum bet of $50 on this slot game. There is one interesting feature within the game, though, that allows the bet placed to be doubled and this is the ‘Bonus Bet’ feature. Activating this will provide bettors with a greater chance of triggering bonus features more frequently as well.
Another option players are able to customise includes the ‘Autoplay’ feature, which allows bettors to set a number of spins to take place uninterrupted.
The symbols of this Ozzy Osbourne slot game can all be associated with the rocker and they are split into two categories in regards to the payouts they reward.
A black rose, crucifix, skull and raven pay the lowest values – although the rose or the crucifix can pay out rewards of 100x the stake if five appear on a payline – whereas the four images of Ozzy will payout bigger rewards; the crazy-looking Ozzy with blood dripping from his eyes provides players with 1,000x their bet for five of a kind!
There is a devil-bat which represents the game’s Wild, whereas the Crazy Train represents the game’s Scatter.
The Wild and the Scatter icons have the ability to provide players with one of the great Ozzy Osbourne bonus features available.
If players are able to land just two of these on the reels, they will then trigger a feature which will see the reels be respun. Before this happens, a Feature Spinner will appear and it will select a symbol to receive a special power before spinning again to reveal which one it will receive.
The options include any wins with the chosen icon to be multiplied by either 2x or 3x the bet or 5x or 7x the bet when the ‘Bonus Bet’ feature is activated.
The Feature Spinner will also give the chosen symbol the power to pay out coin wins on every appearance, even if only one features. The icon can also transform into extra Wilds, or it could upgrade to the next highest-paying symbol.
If no Wilds were to appear but two Scatters show up, the Feature Spinner can transform the icon into an extra Scatter. If this happens, then a Free Spins round could be triggered. If the Bonus Bet is activated for the feature, players receive five free spins, whilst they will receive four without it. The upgrade feature will continue to apply and it will pay out the same multipliers when it is the winning symbol.
RTP (return to player)
Our Ozzy Osbourne game review found that the return to player (RTP) rate can be increased slightly if the Bonus Bet feature is activated. 96.30% is the standard RTP for the game, however this will increase to 96.67% if the feature is active!
